BD had a whole weekend to rest and now he has a sore back? what a real gamer/ leader!!
Maybe he had a busy day shooting for another tv spot.
What’s the use of playing now? Most of the people on the team won’t be coming back, you’re not even building anything.
ok, so there really is no true external motivating factor, but his not playing says plenty about his character and motivation (or lack thereof).
lets look at the year when dwade had his crappy team, how hard did he play each and every night?
just saying ….
(wonder if someone told BD that if he got this team winning and helped to prevent them from getting into a better spot for the draft, he could fustrate Dunleavy the GM as much as he did Dunleavy the coach …. I bet that would motivate BD)
You got great taste Kevin. Anyone know when Outlaw will be coming back from injury?
Sometime this month, allegedly, so looks like sometime next week I’d imagine.
they look like a bunch of d-leaguers out there…
Kaman has reverted back to form. He sucks. Get Joe Dumars on the phone. We can still clear some cap space.
We could have easily traded Kaman for Rip or Tayshaun and solved our problems.
Instead Dun gutted the whole team and screwed the fans and Kim Hughes.
But hey, banking our future on next years draft pick and getting one trip to the playoffs every 12 years is what this teams about!
I don’t see how acquiring Rip, and his albatross of a contract, for Kaman would solve anything. In fact, it would just make things worse. Rip is owed $12.65 per year through 2012-13 when he’ll be finishing up at 35 years old. Sure, Kaman has limitations, but that’s a terrible deal and I haven’t even gotten to how it would impact Gordon. Prince has been plagued with injuries this year, so that’s why there haven’t been any takers for him. He’s going to hit 30 next week, with one year left at $11,148,760 according to hoopshype. Kaman is 27, 7 feet tall and costs about the same as Prince with an extra year on his deal. Given the premium on size, especially size with an offensive game, and Prince for Kaman straight up is a huge win for Detroit.
As to your other points, both Clipper fans and coaches with “interim” in their title are screwed by definition. This season is lost and most of the guys that were traded would not be here next season anyway. The coaches know this, the players know this and the fans know this. Why pretend otherwise? If nothing else, this sets it up for Dunleavy to offer Lebron a max deal in a huge media market with the opportunity to bring a coach of his choosing. He won’t get that offer anywhere else. Of course, it is highly unlikely to work, but at least they are trying. The ghost of Loy Vaught appreciates the effort.
But yeah, you’re right – Lebron isn’t coming. Maybe we pull the rabbit out of the lottery bin like Orlando did in the 90s and get a shot at Wall. Acquiring talent via trade is still an option and likely Dunleavy’s Plan B.
I know it’s only a few games,but Kim Hughes really looks-& acts-clueless. What could have led Dunleavy to pick a guy with no personality & no apparent leadership skills to take over the team. Certainly,what has resulted cannot surprise him. It is inconceivable that any coach could have allowed Kamen to screw up play after play as he did tonight without sitting him down or possibly killing him-which I believe would amount to justifiable homicide.
